A new year, full of new challenges and fun!
This year I am going to be working a lot on the house and garden, I have a plan to grow as much vegetables as I can for myself, now that is a challenge but it should be fun too.I made a start on it last year so this year should not be so daunting.
The house, I really need a kitchen and I would like to design and make it myself with the help of some Ikea units! I would like it to be white vintage look, I’m going to move the door that leads into the dining/sitting room as it will give me much more unit space.
I finished up two quilts for Devon over the holidays both the same but in different colours.
The weather was so wet and windy making it impossible to take the quilts outside for photos so did the best I could in the studio. They are twin sized with a scrappy look and lots of appliqued country pictures, cows, sheep, dogs, tractors, Devon apples for cider, horses, rabbits,chicks, sailing boats and flowers.
The back of back quilt has a big tractor, I used the pattern for the tractor from Lori Holt’s book, Farm Girl Vintage.
Once I had machined quilted it I thought that they needed something more so I used pearly cotton to hand quilt around the applique.
It was nice to sit and hand sew in the evenings with the log burner and a movie. I hope you have a wonderful new year.
